When needed, our team is accompanied by uniformed officers.
All our investigators, in all 100 countries, are locals with former military and/or law enforcement training.
Dating scams work because it is very difficult to verify who you are dealing with over the internet.
People are lonely and want to believe in something. We’ve seen attorneys, doctors and yes, police officers fall victim to online dating scams.
With limited economic opportunity and the hope for a better life, many honest women use these services; but there are also a growing number of internet criminals who hope to cash in on easy profits—and many of them do.
Scams can be very complex and aren’t always simple requests for money.
In many cases, the subject will meet the victim in person in Russia or Ukraine and spend time reassuring him that she’s serious about marriage and leaving her country.
In many cases, we find that men are behind the most elaborate scams; but it’s an equal opportunity crime, and many fraudulent marriage agencies are also involved.
We have contacts at most government agencies, we speak the language, and we have our eyes and ears on the ground in the local area to uncover evidence for our clients.
Searching public records is of limited value even in countries like the U. In Russia and the Ukraine (and nearly all developing countries), searching public records is typically of little value and in many cases must be done manually.
